A Little Preparation Goes A Long Way
Often times we do not think too much about changes, but what might be considered a small change to a network can have a huge over reaching impact. Recently one of our customers opted to change ISP’s, and it was a good decision for them. Howeve,r when you have servers, vpns, and specialized machinery it can get quite complicated. Fortunately they had given us plenty of time to get a specialist ready for the VPN changes, for the servers, and for the specialized machinery. Sure, it took a while, but if they sprung it on us last minute, they would still be down!

If you need help preparing for an ISP change, call us.
